To walk around the streets of Springfield and know that history was made was something EVERYONE should experience. It was just surreal and amazing.

We passed this building. It is currently closed for renovations. That is why I am giving it this rating. We did go there last year. It is plain but kind of interesting. Not sure when it reopens.

At this time, this site is closed, and has been for about a year. The sign says due to renovations, but it's more likely the State of Illinois' dire financial condition. Don't plan to visit here unless you verify they are open.

Currently this building is being renovated but there still was a nice plaque located on the building that informs you about the historic value of the site.

Another highlight in Springfield as you search to find more about Abraham Lincoln. This is is by a square near shops and restaurants.

The office was closed for renovations but the area around the office with historical information and the "Looking for Lincoln" information signs as well as the Lincoln family statues outside of the office still made it worth the visit.

Lincoln historians will like the presentation. The office is set up to show the active disarray of being a lawyer and visiting children. A nice depiction of what might have been.

As other reviewers have noted, the building is currently being renovated so it is closed. Still worth walking by though as it is interesting to see where Lincoln had his law practice. There is a statue of Lincoln and his wife outside to see as...More

I think they open at 8 am. You can get on the National Park Service webpage and probably find out more info.
